One Week in Cuba

One Week in Cuba, Havana, Cuba (B)

What can you see and do with one week in Cuba? After spending a whole month in Cuba we realized it is not a country to rush, but a country to travel slowly through and enjoy the people and the culture. Cuba is changing rapidly and if you want to experience the real Cuba now is the time to travel there. Your trips to Cuba will be unlike any other country you have visited. It tickles all your five senses.

We get a lot of questions on ‘what to do in Cuba?’ so we have put together a Cuba itinerary which will cover 1 week in Cuba, other posts will cover 2 weeks and 3 weeks and a mega post on 4 weeks in Cuba. They will cover the best places to visit in Cuba, where to stay, where to eat, information on wifi and money changing and how to travel around safely.

Another question we get asked all the time: “is it safe to travel to Cuba?” From spending 1 month travelling around we can say it is a safe destination, not once did we feel insecure. The people are lovely and incredibly helpful. Even when our bus broke down on the way to Bayamo, the locals on board who were also heading that way, took us under their wings, arranged a private taxi for all of us to go to Bayamo and another taxi to take us to our accommodation at 8 pm at night. ......

18 Uniquely Cuban Things to Buy in Havana
